Yesterday was truly an amazing day at Southbridge. Several people came forward to pray and/or make decisions for Christ which is always amazing. One of the reasons it was so special for me is because the truth that I preached about has been so revolutionary for my own faith journey. We have an infinitely huge God and often times we make Him so small. We tend to get wrapped up in our circumstances and forget that there is nothing God cannot do. Often times He is using those circumstances (even the ones we wish had never happened) to do a work in us.
I asked our church a simple question: “If you could ask God to do one thing what would it be?” There was a follow up question: “Do you believe He is big enough to do it?” The truth is, there is nothing God cannot do. There is no person too far from God for Him to save them. There is no one He cannot forgive and make clean. There is no disease He cannot heal. There is no situation (no matter how ugly) He cannot transform into something beautiful. Writing down the answer to those questions does not in any way guarantee God will do what we want Him to do, but it does make us aware of what God is using in our lives to do a work in us and it does cause us to reflect on our faith in Him and whether we have made God too small.
Ephesians 3:20-21 20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
